Drones are still hot, but they’re always difficult to purchase. In most cases, you have to spend a crazy amount of money for something that works, so either empties your pockets or get a piece of junk. In this case, you can get a solid drone for just over 300 bucks!

The new Apple TV is faster than the last edition and works for 4K tvs. It’s as good as the Amazon Fire Stick and better than Chromecast.
Item: Samsung Galaxy Watch Smartwatch
Where to Buy It: Samsung
Great accessory for Android users, which we believe is better than Fitbit and LG, but is just a tad below the apple watch. This is probably the most stylish one with the largest screen that has apps that help with everything from organization to fitness.

Where to Buy It: Bose
We’re big fans of Bose speakers and the Home 500 model is one of our favorites. It has Alexa built in, which we know isn’t the greatest AI, but is still a bonus. Combined with its sleek design, eight-microphone speaker array which is great for parties! Pick this up for someone who needs a loudspeaker that can connect with various apps (Spotify, Pandora, Amazon Music, etc.)
Item: iRobot™ Roomba™ 890 Wi-Fi™ Connected Robot Vacuum
Where to Buy It: iRobot
We love the Roombas – they clean your house and adjust to different surfaces. It takes a bit to adjust to how your place is arranged, but once it’s set, it does a great job – no effort needed. The new model has a larger battery and learns faster, good buy for the price.
